  1. That's a real shame, I genuinely thought we would see him in a Fev shirt again next season. Sometimes players just seem to take a while to find the right club to call home, where they then flourish, maybe regaining long-lost form after a succession of bad injuries, quickly becoming a fan favourite and an important part of the fabric and it all just 'works', and it felt like that was what we had found with Kingy. It was the same with Misi a few years ago; he belatedly found the club he should have been at from the off. Anyway I'm really hoping it isn't due to a greedy agent pricing him out of our reach, or alternatively the club trying to low-ball him, as either would be a mistake. Get it sorted out Fev, and come home Kingy lad!
  2. Ridiculously unfair, Fev getting the sh*ttiest of sh*tty ends of the stick yet again from the RFL. It's reasonable to assume they weren't impressed by our demolition of Toulouse in the eliminators, and happily this scheduling at least limits the chances of that happening again.......
  3. Couldn't agree more. We should be opting out of what is essentially a meaningless competition, and the thought of playing a final in front of a largely empty Wembley is (for me) no enticement. In a season where we might just be realistic contenders for promotion - providing the transition from Carr to Webster doesn't have an adverse effect on our levels - we need to be smart about this kind of thing, particularly where it looks like our league rivals are taking the same long view, and this can only serve as a distraction and increased injury risk. I'd much rather turn up for the business end of the season 2 or 3 games fresher, just as London/Toulouse are likely to do.
  4. An excellent signing - SL quality and can play in a number of different key positions. I remember a few years ago watching him turn out for Wakey against us in a pre-season game at a dank PO Road, and thinking then what a good signing he might be for us, then along came Toronto.......... Well done Rovers, and welcome to the club Craig.
  5. The size of the bail-out they have to sucker out of the RFL when their overreaching eventually goes t*ts up. Again.
  6. I don't think tomorrow bears too much comparison to '83; we're certainly not huge underdogs like we were then. There's been little between us and Toronto these past two seasons and in my opinion they are far more beatable this year than last, partly because their epic choke in last years final brought about a reality check, and I suspect the novelty has started to wear off a bit for all concerned, especially their overpaid journeymen players/staff. The odds are probably against us thanks to the ridiculous turnaround/travel situation that has been foisted on us by an RFL with Euro/dollar-signs in their eyes, however this is a final so anything can happen. All the pressure is on them, so providing we get to kick off relatively refreshed, and play like we have been doing, we've every chance. UTR!!!!
  7. Have to agree 100% with this. Col stepped into the breach this season when nobody else would, and has done a fine job so far, and frankly anyone on here looking to tie him in knots or (worse still) goading/belittling him is just demonstrating what a t0sser they are. From what Col seems to have been told by Llongo et al it sounds like the club's view (rightly or wrongly) is that they don't see the forum man of the match as being 'valid' in the same way they would view their own twitter MOM, however as a gesture the club have offered to combine the two to create an overall fan-voted MOM winner. Suspect this is at least partly about the club trying to drive us all toward the official twitter feed - no thanks. I'd agree this is far from ideal, and if we're all happy with the trophy being passed to the winner the next time someone bumps into them at Farmer Copley's etc (I am), we can stick with the current unofficial arrangement.
  8. Albert Day Golding Thought all the forwards went well, with Harrison and Jones impressing too, but we failed to make the most of that dominance. We really need to better utilise the backs we've got - yesterday they didn't see enough of the ball. I'm hoping the new Aussie that's rumoured to be coming is a stand-off.......
  9. 1. Day 2. Golding 3. Walters Special mention to Bussey (for such a great shift, coming back in a bit earlier than perhaps even he expected) and Maskill (who I think has been unlucky not to feature more than he has), who together ensured we didn't miss Cam King too much. It's testimony to how well Day is playing that he stood out on a day of great performances all across the park. An excellent team showing. So satisfying to put one over the likes of Duffy and Beaumont - especially given the lengths the ref was going to to help them out.
  10. Nor me, but then unlike them we're not worthless turrds that can't handle their cheap ale. A big well done to all the morons responsible for this latest fine, and their apologists on this forum too. If the intention was to damage the club and hold us back, both on and off the pitch, mission f*cking accomplished.
  11. Yes sorry about that. I mistook you for Jo Brand.
  12. 1. Golding - had a shed-load to deal with all afternoon in tricky conditions, but handled everything they chucked at him - be interesting to see that grounding behind our sticks in the first half again, 'cos it looked a close call to me. 2. Day - set the tone defensively and going forward, an absolute rock of a player. A great way to celebrate his new contract - Brad down the left and Johnny D down the right gives us great balance and firepower. 3. Holmes - came to the fore on a quieter afternoon for Chissy, kept us going forward well and showed great strength and determination to score a crucial try. Wish we could sign him back on again permanently. Excellent defensive effort today, epitomised by Sutcliffe's man-handling of Gelling in the first half. It needed to be too as we weren't exactly at our fluent best with ball in hand. Closing out a game like that against a strong Widnes side says a lot about our team spirit at the moment and the quality within the squad. A big well done to Carr and all the lads, and my condolences to poor/destitute/full-time/SL-salaried/parachute-paymented Widnes.
  13. That's nothing, yesterday I was in Pont Au Fract.
